6th Grade

Track 1 will be working with rational numbers thi week.  This means that they will be doing operations with decimals ad fractions but unlike past years they will be using integers in all of their problems to ramp up the work they are doing.

Tracks 3 and 4 will be learning all of the rules of exponents.  this is very challenging and often frustrating.  Be patient with your children as they are learning.


Math 1

Track 1 will be finishing up unit 2 and should be ready to test on this unit by Tuesday.  There has been a lot of new skills put to use with these past 2 units and its only going to get harder.  Keep encouraging your children.

Tracks 3 and 4 are going to be taking the unit 1 test Tuesday.  This has been a big change from last year but this group has adapted well to this new way of learning.


Math 2

Track 1 has been working hard on unit 3.  This unit is tough.  I will admit that I am struggling to learn this new way of thinking but everyone is coming around and adapting.

Tracks and 4 are working on some geometry skills and will be learning proofs.
